Gun owners squandering valuable resources by ignoring social media

"'I don’t care' was a representative response from some gun owners in reaction to this column posting a draft of Dianne Feinstein’s 'assault weapon' ban bill. It’s a curious reaction, not only because of highly-publicized anticipation in the gun and 'gun control' communities and the headline news her press conference generated, but because, at this writing, the text still is not posted on the official Library of Congress THOMAS legislative database website. Even more curiously, the draft posted in Gun Rights Examiner’s Scribd document archive account has, to date, only received 31,000+ page views, this for a bill that presumably interests millions. How many have actually read it through is probably a lot less." ...
 

Assault Weapons Got Nothin’ on These Killers

"By now, everyone has heard or read some variation of the argument that ‘assault weapons’ should be banned in spite of the negligible public safety benefits that would result, because nobody ‘needs’ a semi-automatic rifle with a 30-round magazine. This line of reasoning is particularly infuriating because the people who use it clearly don’t apply this logic to anything except guns.... So, as a resource for the Armed Intelligentsia, I’ve assembled an annotated list of some common objects and circumstances that no one really needs, but are more of a public danger than scary ‘military-style’ rifles. I anxiously await the anguished calls that they be banned . . ." ...

"Mayors Against Guns (or as I like to call them, the kiddie porn mayors) have come out threatening to boycott gun and ammunition companies that don’t support their civilian disarmament philosophy:" ...

"We’ve got an idea."

"How about nobody sell to the cities represented by MAIG mayors? That way they can keep their precious dollars from being spent enriching evil gun and ammunition makers."

"See how far they get buying their ammunition at Wal-Mart."

"With a three-box per customer limit, per day."

7- You can buy as many cars you want in a month
8- Students are allowed to bring their cars to school" ...

Police Chief Johnson’s testimony “40% bypass background checks” is false

"Advocates for gun restrictions toss around statistics like they’re magic talismans which confer instant credibility in any debate. The favored source for factoids on gun purchases – including the proportion of transactions subject to background checks – is the National Institute of Justice report, 'Guns in America: National Survey on Private Ownership and Use of Firearms.' Published in 1997, the report is based on an even-older piece of research, the 'National Study of Private Ownership of Firearms in the United States,' a survey sponsored by the Police Foundation in 1994."

"You read that correctly: this is research that is two decades old." ...

"The current battle over gun rights is a conflict between people who understand and value the American political system and those who could no more describe the workings of our Constitutional republic than ask Shlomit Malka for a date in her native tongue. I don’t see the general public’s ignorance—and the resulting support for civilian disarmament—as a conspiracy by left-leaning academics to undermine our way of life one pig-ignorant student at a time. I see citizens’ mindless acquiescence to the Progressive agenda as a reflection of our system’s success. Our government works so peaceably (in the main) that citizens don’t have to give gun rights any serious thought. Until they bloody well do. Literally. ..." ...

"Faced with the prospect of new federal gun restrictions, the Wyoming House gave initial approval Wednesday to bills that sponsors say would exempt guns in the state from new regulations while possibly taking the fight to criminals who might choose to attack public schools."

"The House voted in favor of a bill that would seek to block the federal government from restricting assault weapons and high-capacity magazines. It amended the bill to specify that federal officials who tried to enforce any ban would be subject to state misdemeanor charges instead of felony charges." ...

"They are counting the dead from gunfire again in Chicago, a city awash in weapons despite having one of the strictest gun-control ordinances in the nation." ...

"Both gun-rights and gun-control advocates are seizing on the city's woes — one side to push for greater access to guns for self-defense, the other to seek greater restrictions on gun sales." ...

"Mayor Rahm Emanuel is proposing a law to increase jail time for anyone who fails to report guns that have been lost, stolen or sold. At the U.S. Conference of Mayors, he urged fellow leaders to follow his example and sever financial ties with gun manufacturers that oppose gun-reform legislation." ...

"After finding itself embroiled in another controversy about edited video, NBC News has re-aired a clip its critics say was selectively edited."

"On Monday, MSNBC's Martin Bashir aired a video that seemed to show grief-stricken Neil Heslin being heckled by pro-gun lobbyists as he talked about his 6-year-old son, who was killed in Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting. While making a plea for gun control at a legislative hearing, Heslin at one point he turned to the audience and said: 'I ask if there’s anybody in this room that can give me one reason or challenge this question: why anybody in this room needs to have one of these assault-style weapons or military weapons or high-capacity clips.' ..." ...
